WebVPN allows a remote user to access Outlook Web Access, Citrix Workplace Environment (CWE), and other web-based
applications from any computer with an Internet connection, with no requirement for additional software to be downloaded
and installed to the remote machine.
There is no operating system, ISP, or software requirements associated with this connectivity option, which means that any
platform, Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Solaris can access and utilize the WebVPN connectivity option. When connected to
DOE HQ with WebVPN, there is content filtering restrictions put in place when compared to other VPN alternatives (SSL / IPSec);
therefore, a user can access DOE specific web applications and still access and utilize local LAN resources, E-mail, chat programs
such as AIM / MSN Messenger, and much more.
